Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, ……-Genesis 49:25

   From the desk of the Bishop, C S I Kanyakumari Diocese

Dear friends in Christ,
Greetings in His name.

It is our pleasure to highlight the missionary activities of our Diocesan Missionary Prayer Band.  In response to the Great commission of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature" (MK 16:15), the DMPB is serving the Lord for the past 40 years in some of the unreached areas of our land. It is rendering fruitful services to the under-previleged and down trodden tribals of the hilly regions and the most backward areas of Tamil Nadu and other parts of India

Our Missionaries are staying with these people, providing health care by establishing hospitals and other health centres.  We are providing literacy to the adults and also we have been providing education to the children in our Nursery, Primary, High and Higher Secondary Schools.  A few hostels are also established for the tribal children in these areas. The need for Technical Institutions to offer job oriented courses for these children is highly felt and we are praying and planning for the same.   We have already started some tailoring institutes for these poor tribal women.   Sunday worships and other special meetings are being conducted in these  areas.

We receive the needed financial assistance and prayer support from the members of our congregations.  Many committed young men and women have come forward to serve in these areas as missionaries,teachers,wardens, medical missionaries etc.  Still, there are many unreached villages around our mission fields and the needs to these neglected people are many fold.  We request the earnest prayers of the well wishers for these ventures and seek participation, both physically and financially, as the Lord leads you.

With kind regards and prayers,

Rt.Rev.Dr. G.Devakadasham

1. James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting.

2. vd; rNfhjuNu> ePq;fs; gytpjkhd Nrhjidfspy; mfg;gLk;NghJ>

2. My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

3. cq;fs; tpRthrj;jpd; ghPl;irahdJ nghWikia cz;lhf;Fnkd;W mwpe;J> mij kpFe;j re;Njh\khf vz;Zq;fs;.

3. Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

4. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

5. cq;fspy; xUtd; Qhdj;jpy; FiwTs;stdhapUe;jhy;> ahtUf;Fk; rk;G+uzkha;f; nfhLf;fpwtUk; xUtiuAk; fbe;Jnfhs;shjtUkhfpa Njtdplj;jpy; Nfl;ff;fltd;> mg;nghOJ mtDf;Ff; nfhLf;fg;gLk;.

5. If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

6. MdhYk; mtd; vt;tsthfpYk; re;Njfg;glhky; tpRthrj;NjhNl Nfl;ff;fltd;@ re;Njfg;gLfpwtd; fhw;wpdhy; mbgl;L miyfpw flypd; miyf;F xg;ghapUf;fpwhd;.

6. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed.

7. mg;gbg;gl;l kD\d; jhd; fh;j;jhplj;jpy; vijahfpYk; ngwyhnkd;W epidahjpUg;ghdhf.

7. For let not that man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.

8. ,UkdKs;std; jd; topfspnyy;yhk; epiyaw;wtdhapUf;fpwhd;.

8. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

9. jho;e;j rNfhjud; jhd; cah;j;jg;gl;lijf;Fwpj;J Nkd;ikghuhl;lf;fltd;.

9. Let the brother of low degree rejoice in that he is exalted:

10. IRthpathd; jhd; jho;j;jg;gl;lijf;Fwpj;J Nkd;ikghuhl;lf;fltd;@ Vnddpy; mtd; Gy;ypd; G+itg;Nghy; xope;JNghthd;.

10. But the rich, in that he is made low: because as the flower of the grass he shall pass away.

11. #hpad; fLk; nta;apYld; cjpj;J> Gy;iy cyh;j;Jk;NghJ> mjpd; G+ cjph;e;J> mjpd; mofhd tbT mope;JNghk;@ IRthpathDk; mg;gbNa jd; topfspy; thbg;Nghthd;.

11. For the sun is no sooner risen with a burning heat, but it withereth the grass, and the flower thereof falleth, and the grace of the fashion of it perisheth: so also shall the rich man fade away in his ways.

12. Nrhjidiar; rfpf;fpw kD\d; ghf;fpathd;@ mtd; cj;jkndd;W tpsq;fpdgpd;G fh;j;jh; jk;kplj;jpy; md;G$Ufpwth;fSf;F thf;Fj;jj;jk; gz;zpd [PtfphPlj;ijg; ngWthd;.

12. Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.

13. Nrhjpf;fg;gLfpw vtDk;> ehd; Njtdhy; Nrhjpf;fg;gLfpNwd; vd;W nrhy;yhjpUg;ghdhf@ Njtd; nghy;yhq;fpdhy; Nrhjpf;fg;gLfpwtuy;y> xUtidAk; mth; Nrhjpf;fpwtUky;y.

13. Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

14. mtdtd; jd;jd; Ra ,r;irapdhNy ,Of;fg;gl;L> rpf;Fz;L> Nrhjpf;fg;gLfpwhd;.

14. But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

15. gpd;G ,r;irahdJ fh;g;ge;jhpj;J> ghtj;ijg; gpwg;gpf;Fk;> ghtk; G+uzkhFk;NghJ> kuzj;ijg; gpwg;gpf;Fk;.

15. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

16. vd; gphpakhd rNfhjuNu> Nkhrk;NghfhjpUq;fs;.

16. Do not err, my beloved brethren.

17. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.

18. mth; rpj;jq;nfhz;L jk;Kila rpU\;bfspy; ehk; Kjw;gyd;fshtjw;F ek;ikr; rj;jpa trdj;jpdhNy [epg;gpj;jhh;.

18. Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of his creatures.

19. Wherefore, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath:

20. kD\Uila Nfhgk; NjtDila ePjpia elg;gpf;fkhl;lhNj.

20. For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God.

21. Mifahy;> ePq;fs; vy;yhtpj mOf;ifAk; nfhba Jh;f;Fzj;ijAk; xopj;Jtpl;L> cq;fs; cs;sj;jpy; ehl;lg;gl;ljhAk; cq;fs; Mj;Jkhf;fis ,ul;rpf;f ty;yikAs;sjhAkpUf;fpw trdj;ijr; rhe;jkha; Vw;Wf;nfhs;Sq;fs;.

21. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.

22. my;yhkYk;> ePq;fs; cq;fis tQ;rpahjgbf;Fj; jpUtrdj;ijf; Nfl;fpwth;fsha; khj;juky;y> mjpd;gb nra;fpwth;fshAk; ,Uq;fs;.

22. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.

23. vd;dj;jpdhnydpy;> xUtd; jpUtrdj;ijf; Nfl;Lk; mjpd;gb nra;ahjtdhdhy;> fz;zhbapNy jd; Rght Kfj;ijg; ghh;f;fpw kD\Df;F xg;ghapUg;ghd;@

23. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass:

24. mtd; jd;idj;jhNd ghh;j;J> mt;tplk;tpl;Lg; NghdTlNd> jd; rhay; ,d;dnjd;gij kwe;JtpLthd;.

24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.

25. RahjPdg;gpukhzkhfpa G+uzg; gpukhzj;ij cw;Wg;ghh;j;J> mjpNy epiyj;jpUf;fpwtNd Nfl;fpwij kwf;fpwtdhapuhky;> mjw;Nfw;w fphpia nra;fpwtdhapUe;J> jd; nra;ifapy; ghf;fpathdhapUg;ghd;.

25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

26. cq;fspy; xUtd; jd; ehit mlf;fhky;> jd; ,Ujaj;ij tQ;rpj;J> jd;idj; Njtgf;jpAs;stndd;W vz;zpdhy; mtDila Njtgf;jp tPzhapUf;Fk;.

26. If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man's religion is vain.

27. jpf;fw;w gps;isfSk; tpjitfSk; gLfpw cgj;jputj;jpNy mth;fis tprhhpf;fpwJk;> cyfj;jhy; fiwglhjgbf;Fj; jd;idf; fhj;Jf;nfhs;SfpwJNk gpjhthfpa NjtDf;FKd;ghf khrpy;yhj Rj;jkhd gf;jpahapUf;fpwJ.

27. Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
